Should we allow imagination to define physics?

Should we let imagination define our reality?  If so how much should we allow science to dependent on it? Most if not all explanatory models of reality rely to some extent on ones imagination because they use unobservable quantities to support them. For example Einstein used the concept of a space-time dimension to define gravity.  … Read more

Quantum mechanics as an emergent property of space-time.

Is the quantization of energy/mass a fundamental or an emergent characteristic of reality. Quantum mechanics assumes that it is fundamental because it defines all interactions within it in terms of its quantized properties while one could say that Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity defines it in terms of an emergent property of continuous space-time manifold … Read more

Did Einstein predict Quantum Entanglement in 1905?

Quantum entanglement is defined “as a physical phenomenon that occurs when pairs or groups of particles are generated or interact in ways such that the quantum state of each particle cannot be described independently instead, a quantum state may be given for the system as a whole”. Einstein referred to this as “spooky action at … Read more

The relevance of classical mechanics to a quantum environment.

Presently there is disconnect between our understanding of the probabilistic world of quantum mechanics and the classical one of causality because it can predict with precision the future position of an object while the other cannot. However this may just be an illusion resulting from a lack of understanding of the quantum environment. One of … Read more

Infinities: what do they mean for Quantum theory.

Something that is infinite or the quality of having no limits or end cannot exist or be a part of the physically observable environment we live in primarily because it is finite. Some might disagree by pointing out that we cannot know the full extent of our universe because the speed of light puts limits … Read more
